The Autism Puzzle BBC4, Monday, January 13, 9-10pm

In the Sixties, autism was believed to be a rare condition, affecting perhaps one child in 10,000; now British teachers report one case in fewer than 100 pupils, and a generation has grown up since autism was first properly diagnosed. Saskia Baron, who made this film, has been personally involved: her brother was found to be autistic at a time when there was no special provision for educating those with the condition and this led her parents to set up a specialist school for autistic children, the Society school in west Ealing. In this documentary, we hear from artist David Braunsberg, who is himself autistic, from Charlotte Moore, writer and mother of two autistic children, and from experts in the field.
